MongoDB for Data Modelers (or, “Get these kids off my lawn!”)
Austin Zellner, MongoDB
MongoDB has become a disruptive database in the development world, and is often introduced into organizations by developers who are looking to take advantage of the flexibility of the schema-less document model. But while it has been a blessing for developers, it has been a source of some contention for DBA’s and Data Modelers, who are rightfully concerned that they were being pushed out of the conversation. As the product has evolved ( especially over the last two years ), MongoDB is now ready to play well with others, and has the foundation for integrating into a data modeling life cycle.
This talk will address:
- What is MongoDB and why are you likely to find it lurking in your organization?
- What is the MongoDB document model?
- How MongoDB tooling allows for having a formal modeling process, while still allowing the power of the document model to be realized.
- How to approach data modeling for the document model.
